Microbrewery Equipment Market Overview
Microbrewery Equipment Market growth rate is projected to be 5.9% until 2030. The global market value should be USD 17.45 billion in 2023. It should be USD 26.21 billion in 2023-2030.
Microbrewery equipment is used to ferment the malt by-products that will become beer. Fermentation is vital to produce good lagers. The microbrewery equipment plays a vital role in fermenting the beer.
The grains (barley) that are fermented to produce different types of beer are rich in key vitamins, nutrients, and antioxidants. Thus, beers are a significant source of vital nutrition. The fact that they are rich in antioxidants means that they can offer their customers several health benefits including fewer illnesses and the chance to live a longer and healthier life. These are some of the reasons why various types of lagers have become more popular in recent years.
Beers are also rich in fibre and polyphenols. Thus, they may keep the people who drink them more regular.
Microbrewery equipment is used in small, medium, and large-scale enterprises alike. It includes monitoring tools and systems whose sole purpose is to check the quantity and quality of beers being brewed. The trend in recent years has been to automate as many of these systems and tools as possible.
COVID-19 is a dangerous virus and its presence is changing the destiny of the world. The world was already headed towards the digital age but COVID-19 is accelerating this trend. This virus made concepts like social distancing, contactless delivery, and remote working the new norm.
Governments and public health officials realized that COVID-19 had to be taken seriously. That’s why they imposed quarantines and lockdowns. These were temporary since they didn’t really work. However, the long-term effects that they had on many businesses around the world were long-term and devastating. Most businesses found that they had to either shut operations down, at least temporarily or dramatically scale back production.
The companies in the global microbrewery industry were no exception. Many manufacturers found that they had excess inventory as sales suddenly dropped. People were staying in much more often and thus were turning to online stores to buy beer. It’s also wreaked havoc on beer’s global supply chain and distribution networks.
What’s boosting growth in the global microbrewery equipment market is the fact that more and more people are using this equipment to produce beer at home. Many people find that brewing their own beer is far less costly than buying beer that has been brewed in a brewery.
Many people are gravitating towards drinking more beer because it’s relatively low in calories and a rich source of antioxidants. This factor is also driving growth in the global microbrewery equipment market.
Many companies in the global microbrewery equipment market are enticed by the higher CAGR of the market. They are also enticed by its higher market value. These companies are seizing upon the greater demand for different types of beers by ensuring that their facilities are equipped with the latest and most technologically advanced equipment available.
They are also investing heavily in research and development to develop the type of microbrewery equipment that will allow them to brew beer in an environmentally friendly manner.
Microbrewery equipment can be costly, especially the newer generation that is environmentally friendly and technologically advanced. The high cost of maintaining and repairing microbrewer equipment is also another restraining factor. These machines also require a great deal of energy to operate efficiently. High energy costs are another restraining factor.
Perhaps the greatest challenge that companies in the global microbrewery equipment market face lie in trying to produce a newer generation of equipment that is technologically advanced and environmentally friendly enough to brew more beer but is priced at price points that the global masses can afford.

This segment generated the largest revenue stream of all of the segments in the global microbrewery market in 2018. This trend is expected to continue for the time period that this report covers. Barley and other grains must ferment for beer to be produced. Different breweries have different types of equipment because they produce different types of beer.
This equipment deteriorates quickly because it’s constantly exposed to malt, grains, alcohol, and chemicals. All of these are used to produce quality lagers. The equipment needs constant maintenance. It also needs to be repaired and replaced regularly. These factors are contributing to the industry’s rapid growth rate.
The type segment can be grouped into the following sub-segments:
- Mashing Equipment
- Cooling Equipment
By operation mode
This segment can be grouped into the following sub-segments:
- Semi-automatic and automatic
The semi-automatic and automatic sub-segment had the largest microbrewery equipment market share in 2018. It’s also expected to enjoy the highest microbrewery equipment market growth rate for the time period that this report covers.
The global microbrewery equipment market can be grouped into the following regions:
- North America
- The European Union
- The Rest of the World
The European Union currently has the largest microbrewery equipment market share at 48.2%. This was according to 2019 data. The European Union is expected to have the largest market share for the time period that this report covers. One reason for this is the fact that many nations in the European Union have large numbers of beer consumers. One case in point is Germany. Another is Austria.
Another factor that is contributing to the European Union’s dominance in terms of microbrewery equipment market share is the fact that many larger companies in the region are merging with and/or acquiring other similar companies.
The Asia-Pacific region is witnessing respectable growth in the regional microbrewery equipment market. China, especially, has the largest microbrewery equipment market share of any nation in the Asia-Pacific region. The reason why is that the Chinese prefer to drink different types of beers. Microbrewery equipment is capable of producing these different varieties of beers.
Asians are gravitating towards drinking different varieties of beer because they perceive that it improves their overall health.
The North American region held a sizeable portion of the global microbrewery equipment market share in 2019. The region is expected to enjoy a high growth rate for the time period that this report covers.
The global market is highly competitive. It’s also extremely fragmented. The reasons for this are that the market has a high CAGR. It’s also highly lucrative. Thus, many companies are enticed to enter the market. It’s especially the case with larger companies with huge treasuries.
